Right.  This is quite confusing. So, instead of the current
header line and node header:

Next: uniq invocation,  Up: Operating on sorted files
File: coreutils.info,  Node: sort invocation

it's better to hide the node header completely and show the
following header line:

(coreutils)sort invocation  Next: uniq invocation,  Up: Operating on sorted 
files

This, of course, duplicates information displayed in the mode line,
but this is not as bad as current information separation between
node header, header line and mode line.

In the latest patch for info.el I already proposed to add `M-s' keybinding:

  (define-key Info-mode-map "\M-s" 'Info-search-next)

There were another suggestions like `/', `\' for the same function,
but seems these are not acceptable.
